Soiree Day-ORU Graduation Party

I was so honored to help with a college graduation party over this past weekend.  I was recruited by one of my best friends who happens to also be my pastor! Her son proudly graduated from Oral Roberts University  which totally deserved a shindig!  My friend had found a cake on Pinterest that she wanted done in ORU's colors of blue and gold and we used that as our inspiration.  This wasn't anything to elaborate....it was just right in my opinion!

Pretty awesome, right?  The cake just made the whole thing! It was made by a local gal who is quickly becoming the girl to use! 

Tie cookies made by my awesome sister!! 

And probably the easiest treat you could make for a graduation party....pretzel diplomas!! I simply dipped pretzel twists in white chocolate  and then tied on a gummy sour strip. We found the gummy strips at a candy store which had other flavors/colors so wouldn't be hard to match your school!
Got the letters from Hobby Lobby and sprayed them with gold glitter paint....the easiest table decoration!

My friend had the idea for the sucker stand in her head....so glad I was able to translate it! Tutorial coming on Thursday!! It's easy too!
Other treats were gumballs and mints.

Yes the glasses and tie were for guests to take fun photos!
The weather turned out to be yucky....cooler than normal and kinda rainy so the party was moved indoors which made for some coziness but all in all it was a great day celebrating one awesome young man!

Happy Tuesday!!
